BRIDGEVILLE, Del.- Only hours after a 35-year-old man was shot to death during a home invasion in Bridgeville, that same home became a target again when someone fired shots at it late Thursday night, police said. 

Delaware State Police said that shortly before 10 p.m. Thursday troopers and officers responded to the 20000 block of Conrail Road after a 9-1-1 call was received from that home stating someone had fired shots at it. Police said the 53-year-old female victim informed arriving troopers that she and her 63-year-old boyfriend were in a back bedroom when then she heard sounds of gunfire outside.  She told troopers that she immediately got up and shut her bedroom door and called 9-1-1. 

According to police, further investigation revealed a separate bedroom window located in the front of the house had been shot out but the room was unoccupied at the time.  Police said a 46-year-old male was also in the house as the time, but was sleeping in a separate room.  None of the residents were reported as injured.

Troopers were assisted by the Bridgeville and Seaford police departments, who searched the area for any potential suspects or vehicles in the area.  None were located.

This incident remains under investigation by the Delaware State Police Homicide Unit as this is the same home that a homicide occurred earlier the same day. In that incident, a man identified as 35-year-old James F. Dickerson was fatally shot in the head during a home invasion that occurred shortly before 1 a.m. 

Anyone with information about either one of these incidents is asked to contact Detective J. King at (302) 698-8561.  Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, via the internet at www.delaware.crimestoppersweb.com, or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword "DSP."

    One of the last remaining 1950's diner cars on Delmarva is now nothing but rubble.

    The Seaford Eagle Diner was ripped down Tuesday morning so the owners can re-build a new restaurant on site. Owner Serkan Darilmaz says the diner was in such bad shape that renovating it would've come at an astronomical cost.
